Cristiano Ronaldo had been praised in Spanish media following his hat-trick in the win over Atletico Madrid by 3–0. This game sent Juventus to the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
The record 8th treble of Ronaldo in the elite competition in Europe hauled Juventus back from a defeat in the first leg by 2–0. It sent the Serie A leader through an aggregate of 3–2.
This had been the 5th time Cristiano helped to knock out Atletico out this Champions League as he won the finals of 2014 and 2016 against them and defeated them in the quarter finals of 2015 and also the semifinals of 2017 when he was in Real Madrid.
Cristiano Ronaldo has imposed his law stated one Spanish newspaper while another lauded him as the king of this Champions League. There has also been a regret that Real Madrid who suffered an exit after being defeated at the Ajax Amsterdam in the last week, had enabled them to achieve the top score and leave 103 million Euros in the last of July.
Real Madrid shouldn’t have allowed a player like this escape since he already had the contract. He had been the all-time top scorer and also one of the patrons when it came to the wins of the Champions League. They gave away Cristiano Ronaldo, the legendary player for 100 million Euros. There is no doubt about the fact that Ronaldo is a priceless player and letting him go has been a great error.
